The application of intelligent imaging techniques to industrial vision problems is an evolving aspect of current machine vision research. Machine vision is a relatively new technology, more concerned with systems engineering than with computer science, and with much to offer the manufacturing industry in terms of improving efficiency, safety and product quality. Beginning with an introductory chapter on the basic concepts, the authors develop these ideas to describe intelligent imaging techniques for use in a new generation of industrial imaging systems. Sections cover the application of AI languages such as Prolog, the use of multi-media interfaces and multi-processor systems, external device control, and colour recognition. The text concludes with a discussion of several case studies that illustrate how intelligent machine vision techniques can be used in industrial applications.

Provides an extensive survey of over 100 machine vision methods, with a detailed taxonomy for local, regional and global features. It provides background to develop intuition about why interest point detectors and feature descriptors actually work.

Explores a method for symbolically intrepreting images based upon a parallel implementation of a network-of-frames to describe intelligent processing. The system has been implemented in an object-oriented environment in the language Parlog++.

The main ideas in the area of face recognition are security applications and human-computer interaction. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with the most up to date research performed in automatic face recognition.
